Yesterday the world lost another legend, Tom Petty died aged 66 after suffering a cardiac arrest in his Malibu home.

He'd only just finished a large-scale tour, which he'd said was likely to be his "last big one", telling Rolling Stone he wanted to spend as much time as possible with his granddaughter.

Petty has an enormous number of hits under his belt - his 1993 Greatest Hits album had 18 tracks on it and he continued to release records following its release.

Here's 5 of his greatest songs of all time.

  • American Girl (1976)
  • Don't Come Around Here No More (1985)
  • Here Comes My Girl (1980)
  • Refugee (1979)
  • Free Fallin'(1989)
